Fedora uses a number of folders for Qt stuff, under /usr/include. These 
are not made available by the usual 'include' definitions, by default. 
Apparently, other distros just put everything under one folder?

Try adding these definitions to the top of mythplugins configure.:

These 'exports' are all on one line, of course. Split here for clarity.

If you get an error about QtWebKit/QTWebView not being available so that 
MythWeb will not be made, in mythtv's configure run this in the mythtv 

# Fix QtWebKit header problem for Fedora in configure
  sed -i s/"\/QWebView"/" -i\/usr\/include\/QtWebkit"/ configure

This strips the reference to 'QtWebView out of a line in configure 
(around line 2000) and adds the correct include folder.

This is Fedora specific and there's not much that can be done about 
either problem.

This SHOULD help, but YMMV.

now if anything I say offends you.
          I may wish to offend you again in the future.
